Sen. Lautenberg seeks to restrict private sales




While the tragedy in Tucson weighs heavily on the national conscience, it’s business as usual for gun show dealers who continue to peddle dangerous guns without a background check,” Lautenberg said Monday in a statement. “The gun show loophole remains in place today because the special interest gun lobby has scared off legislators from enacting responsible reform. It’s time to put aside business as usual in Washington and start considering the safety of our families over special interests.”

Another great show by our knee-jerk government on what they fear most.. Armed and capable, legal citizens doing the oldest thing since the time of Man. Buying and selling.

There is no loop-hole. The Legal citizen goes through legal means to buy and sell guns, as per allowed by law.

Does this mean the government looks at us all as criminal, since they treat us all as criminals?

makes one wonder.

Lautenberg's bill would have had no bearing on the Tucson rampage, which killed six and injured 13, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.). The man arrested in that shooting, Jared Lee Loughner, had a history of disturbing behavior and drug abuse, but was able to purchase his arms from licensed dealers after passing background checks —

It's a shame that any crisis will be used to further the destruction efforts of the 2nd amendment. Make the penalties for gun crimes as stiff as you want, hell, make it an automatic death penalty for all I care. The ones who are buying guns legally are not the ones that need to be corralled. It's the criminals who buy them from the same guy they get their three hits of crack from. Lawmakers need to start enforcing the laws before they try to change and make new ones. And for God's sake, get rid of the stupid ones.

THAT is the part that the people do not seem to understand. "Gun control" and "Gun laws" don't effect the criminality, and those that do not care about the laws.

Law-abiding citizens will follow the crappy gun laws, while the criminals will do as they please..

But the gubberment, and anti-gunners think that by having gun control, they can be safe.

/sigh
